The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Finalmente - Video - Danza de las Plumas

Last July, I spent a few days in Teotitlan de Valle during the annual fiesta celebrating La Preciosa Sangre de Nuestra Señor Jesucristo, the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. The week is filled with much activity and much of it is centered around la Danza de las Plumas and La Calenda. I wrote about La Danza here and here and La Calenda here and there is a video here.
I was there for two different days of dancing. So here at long last is the video of La Danza de las Plumas.
